About the Leo Baeck Institute, New York

The Library of the Leo Baeck Institute, New York (LBI) is the foremost research library devoted to the history of German-speaking Jews. Its 80,000-volume library and extensive archival and art collections represent the most significant repository of primary source material and scholarship on the Jewish communities of Central Europe over the past five centuries.

German-speaking Jews had a history marked by individual as well as collective accomplishments and played a significant role in shaping art, science, business, and political developments in the modern era, as evidenced by the continuing relevance of figures such as Moses Mendelssohn, Albert Einstein, and Franz Kafka.

DigiBaeck: Leo Baeck Institute's Digital Collections

LBI is committed to preserving this legacy and has digitized over 3.5 million pages of documents from its collections—from rare renaissance books to the personal correspondence of luminaries and ordinary people alike, to community histories and official documents. A large portion of these collections were digitized by and are hosted here at Internet Archive.
